Most pro photographers must put on the blogging hat once in a while. Wouldn't it be fantastic to have a Blog module that enabled quick image collaging and watermark locating? No, the Print module is not good for this. I'm talking about a drag and drop mechanism. I'm not saying I want something for book design which usually needs more complex tools.

Publish service could be leveraged somewhat, but most of the work would have to be done by the thing listening at the other end (i.e., the blog API).

This is a good idea, though, and has got me thinking about an RPC API driven interface. Unfortunately, the SDK-available UI elements in Lightroom are pretty slim.

Though, I suspect something could be done with publish services and something like http://pixelpipe.com/. It could use photo metadata for the text of the blog. Rudimentary, but more than possible right now.

Someone could also abuse the web module, though this is a simple edit and publish model that doesn't really understand incremental changes over time (which is what a blog model would be.)

If you are looking for a method to publish images directly to your blog, Timothy Armes offers an export plugin that makes this quite easy to do. I find it quite handy and easy to work with. It makes posting to your blog almost effortless without having to create derivative files for the purpose, or leave the friendly confines of LR to do the heavy lifting.

Now, if you are looking for a method to create collages for this purpose, I'm not aware of such a method unless you would print to jpeg and then import those images to LR to post to your blog.
